Suggestions: What To Do With Several Varieties Of Leftover Cheese?

ViolentScarlet Dec 5, 2009 07:57 AM

For some reason, I've ended up with half-eaten blocks of a few different types of cheese and I'm looking for something to do with them that's not mac and cheese. I have parm-reggiano, pecorino romano, gouda, sharp cheddar, muenster, monterey jack, and some sort of shredded mexican blend. I don't need to use them all in one recipe but I'd definitely appreciate any suggestions that make use of at least 3-4 of them, particuarly the non-italian ones (bc those are at least easy to use on top of pasta). Thanks!

      Potted cheese:

      225g cheese
      110g butter
      40ml sherry
      plus salt, pepper and a little ground mace and mustard powder.

      Grate the cheese, beat in everything else and pack into ramekins or other suitable pot.

      The sort of after-dinner nibble you might smear on some crackers and eat with celery, raisins, nuts

        Here's a link to a discussion of Jacques Pepin's cheese spread. It uses odds and ends of a number of cheeses.
